Business & Management Strategy

Curated by Tom Gary
Business and Management Strategy is an ongoing process that evaluates and controls the business and the industries in which the company is involved; assesses its competitors and sets goals and strategies to meet all existing and potential competitors; and then reassesses each strategy regularly to determine how it has been implemented and whether it has succeeded or needs reevaluation to meet changed circumstances, new technology, new competitors, a new economic environment, or a new social, financial, or political environment.

Discussions Discussion How Does One Live as a Leader?
Maddi Ownbey, Feb. 27, 2014

A leader is a person that commands or leads a group. Or that is what is the dictionary says. On the other hand it doesn’t matter if you lead the group, you have to have the responsibility and have the determination to be a successful leader. Just because a person is in charge doesn’t mean the are a leader. Hitler was called a leader and he was but was he a good one? No, he had so many people killed just because she did not like the way they looked. What kind of leader is this? To be an effective leader you have to be persuasive and you have to lead the group in the direction to make things better for the group as a whole. You don’t have to do everything the leader does. If you do not feel that it is the right thing to do, why do it? Be your own leader and use your own judgments to lead you.

This is Ellen Degeneres’s commencement speech for Tulane University graduating class of 2009. I think this is a great example of someone who started out with nothing, didn’t know what they wanted to do, and eventually turned their passion and their dream into a reality. In my opinion Ellen Degeneres became who she is today by coming up with an idea and running with it, straying away from the norm, and staying true to her values and her character. I know it’s a little lengthy but please take the time to watch this, I think it’s worthwhile and of course, funny.

First, you find what you love to do. Then be good at it. No doubt. Everyone has motivation, it’s hard to find it. In the end, it’s for the pursuit of happiness.

Census documenting U.S. Great Depression to be released:

Intimate details of 132 million people who lived through the 1930s will be disclosed as the U.S. government releases the 1940 census on April 2 to the public for the first time after 72 years of privacy protection lapses.

This will be a very interesting look back at the toughest time ever on record for America’s workforce.

Someone who isn’t afraid to put their right foot forward and speak up in situations were they may be the only one who stands up for their certain belief. A leader needs to be someone who is understanding but who can get things done.

    I agree, im that kind of person that gets scared to step up in situations. Somepeople like me just need to step up and be the leader and help people out in situations.

The $1.6 Billion Woman, Staying on Message//

Sheryl Sandberg, Mark Zuckerberg’s No. 2, has helped steer Facebook, Inc. to its once-unimaginable height. Her message is about women and how, in her view, they must take responsibility for their careers and not blame men for holding them back.

Given that Ms. Sandberg is Facebook’s chief operating officer, and that all of Wall Street was hanging on last week’s news, you might think that she was absurdly off-topic. But Ms. Sandberg sees herself as more than an executive at one of the hottest companies around — more, too, than someone who will soon rank among the few self-made billionaires who are women. She sees herself as a role model for women in business and technology. In speeches, she often urges women to “keep your foot on the gas pedal,” and to aim high.

Goodbye, middle class

Nearly one in two Americans is now living on the lower end of the income scale, according to the Census Bureau. For a family of four that’s less than $45,000 a year. The following article takes a look at three families who are falling out of the middle class.

Leading Older Employees

As young professionals take on increased responsibility at office, they need to build management skills that allow them to work effectively with senior colleagues. When you’re young and you’re tasked with leading, the three most important things to keep in mind are as follows:
1. Be Confident
2. Be Open Minded
3. Solicit Feedback Regularly

Interesting read for all young professionals, from the Harvard Business Review.

    The litany of leaders who've founded and built their companies in their twenties and thirties is long and storied. It's hard to read much of anything in the news these days without Mark Zuckerberg, Biz Stone, or Andrew Mason weighing in.

Discussions Discussion Building The “Perfect” Business Model
Jessie Rhodes, Jan. 25, 2012

The new (green) economy, according to Jeremy Rifkin:

How’s this for a disruptive model. Economist Jeremy Rifkin says in the future power will be green, cheap and distributed peer-to-peer. Imagine the internet, only for energy.

Here’s Rifkin’s vision: The Facebook generation seizes the initiative, tearing up conventional thinking about where energy comes from and how it’s delivered. They apply all their nous in sharing information and building seamless networks to create a new, resilient energy economy in its place, powered entirely by renewables – solar, wind, water and tidal, biomass and more besides. This will be nothing short of a new industrial revolution, says Rifkin, and its impacts will be as dramatic and sweeping as any that have gone before.

http://www.greenwisebusiness.co.uk/news/the-futures-lateral-the-new-green-economy-according-to-jeremy-rifkin-2978.aspx

Great economic revolutions happen”, he says, “when new energy regimes emerge that facilitate more complex civilisations and more energy flow. In turn, they require communication revolutions to manage them. And when communication and energy revolutions come together, historically, they change the economic footprint.”

Jeremy Rifkin, maverick economist and adviser to German Chancellor Angela Merkel and a clutch of EU leaders.

    The impact of what Jeremy Rifkin is discussing here is mind boggling, to me. Why haven't I ever heard of this guy? And shouldn't his video on youtube have more than a mere 6400 views? Thanks for posting this!
